(Ancient Greek) Ana “separate, apart from” Temnein “to cut up, cut open”
A branch of Biology and medicine that
considers the structures of living things
The scientific study of the physical structure of
an animal or plant; the body of a human or animal, or the structure of a plant.
“The study of structures of living things.”
In some of its facets, anatomy is closely
related to embryology, comparative anatomy, and comparative embryology, through common roots in evolution.
Etymology (Greek) Physis “nature” or “origin” Logia “study of”
The science that deals with the way that the
bodies of living things operate (this includes how organisms , organ systems, organs, cells, and biomolecules carry out the chemical and physical functions that exist in a living system.
“The study of how the bodies of living things function/operate.”
Physiology is closely related to anatomy; anatomy is the study of form, and physiology is the study of function. Due to the frequent connection between form and function, physiology and anatomy are intrinsically linked and are studied in tandem as part of a medical curriculum.
Your heart beats 100,000 times a day! It’s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Like fingerprints, everyone’s tongue print is
different! Right handed people live, on average, nine (9) years longer than left-handed people. Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system!
Etymology (Greek) Histos “tissue” Logia “study”
The study of the microscopic anatomy
of cells and tissues of plants and animals
“The study of tissue.”
Cell biology is the study of living cells, their
DNA and RNA and the proteins they express. Anatomy is the study of organs visible by the naked eye. Morphology studies entire organisms.
Etymology (Greek) Histos “tissue” Pathos “disease-suffering” Logos “study”
Refers to the microscopic examination of
tissue in order to study the manifestations of disease
In clinical medicine, histopathology refers to
the examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist
“The study of deceased
Etymology (Greek) Pathos “feeling, suffering” Logia “the study of”
The scientific study of the nature of disease
and its causes, process, development, and consequences The precise study and diagnosis of disease The study of the causes of diseases and how they affect people The study of the origin, nature, and course of diseases
“The study of disease(s)”
Anatomical pathology Clinical pathology Dermatopathology Hematopathology Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Veterinary pathology Plant pathology Molecular pathology
Anatomy – the study of structures of
living things Physiology – the study of how the bodies of living things function/operate Histology – the study of tissue Histopathology – the study of deceased tissue Pathology – the study of disease(s)
